Happy 3 o'clock everyone!! It is an absolutely gorgeous day here today. The sun is shinging brightly, there is a slight breeze, the lake is calm except for an occasional boat and I wish I was outside. But duty calls as I am finishing up a quilt by Jane O.
I did run out briefly to take some pictures of some of the beautiful flowers and plants I received for Mothers Day from my family. Perennials and annuals were given as gifts and each plant brings peace to me along with a smile as I gaze at God's beauty. I can't pick a favorite flower or plant because each one of them is special to me. I have one little yellow flower blooming on the plant in picturre #4. This plant was given to me when my father passed away in 2001. I can hardly believe that my Dad has been gone for almost 11 years. The little yellow flowers will always make me think of my Dad.
My rose bush is a bounty of beauty. There might be 75-100 blooms out on this bush right now. I could smell the sweet scent of these roses this morning as I was standing outside on the deck above the roses. I am blessed.
Don't forget to stop and smell the roses.
Blessings to all.
